OK, y’all, I’ve been posting photos pretty regularly on Facebook and Instagram, along with the occasional blog post, so you can follow along on this journey. Now I’m going quiet for the next two weeks.
Besides coming back to the Camino Frances to do some walking, I’m also back to do a little bit of paying back. These pilgrimages have given me so much, both artistically and spiritually.
For the next two weeks I’ll be volunteering as a hospitaliera at Monasterio San Anton.
Monasterio San Anton, as you might guess from its name, is a former Antonine monastery and hospital. It dates from the 11th century, and is currently pretty much in ruins – except for a small albergue tucked along one wall.
So I’ll be cooking meals and making beds and otherwise helping make pilgrims comfortable as they make their way to Santiago. There’s no electricity, and no wifi.
See you in two weeks!
